ECOGOLD Saddle Pads and Horse Boots are used by the best riders in the world, but what are those top riders really like behind closed doors? We begin a new “get to know ECOGOLD riders” series and hope to bring you a few more of these in-depth interviews.

Patricia, from Ecogold, brings us the opportunity to get to know 2 of the team members at this year's Equine Canada's Annual Awards Gala!!  Not only did Patricia provide wonderful coverage of the event on their company blog, but she did some extensive interviews with both these top lady riders.  

Our first two riders are World Equestrian Games Silver Medalists and Canada’s Equestrian of the Year, Stephanie Rhodes-Bosch and Hawley Bennett. The interview took place at the Lord Elgin hotel in Ottawa on January 29, a few hours before Equine Canada’s Annual Awards Gala where Stephanie and Hawley received the Equestrian of the Year – George Jacobsen Trophy on behalf of the Canadian Eventing Team at the World Equestrian Games. Click here for our coverage of the Gala.

ECOGOLD has been sponsoring Hawley since she won Bromont in 2009 and we partnered with Stephanie since the 2010 World Equestrian Games. 
Turns out, the interviews came out pretty well (at least, according to their mums).

Ok, watch the videos and get to know two of the best riders in the world.
